A report by Forbes claims that Apple intends to bring the calculator app on Watch 5 with its latest watchOS 6.
This could come in handy for some quick calculations while you are moving.
Improved Health Features
Even though the current Apple Watch has a lot of health-related features like ECG, Apple is not done.
According to the reports, watchOS 6 and Apple Watch 5 will bring the ability to track the glucose level in the blood of the user.
The company is also rumored to be working on an all new and improved sleep tracking technology. The Cupertino based tech giant has recently acquired the Beddit, a sleep tracking startup.
We expect the Watch 5 to be priced around $400 for the non-cellular version. The LTE version of the Watch 5 might cost you $500.
